Austin, Texas – Hamilton Pool (HDR)

It has been near freezing here in Texas for a few days in a row.  So I decided to head out to Hamilton Pool to catch a few icicles yesterday during lunch.    The waterfall is barely a waterfall, but as I walked up I saw the ice hanging from the cave wall above.  As it is winter and wide angle shot is nothing special….trees are bare, everything just looks brown.  Although the pool was super blue!!   I decided a close up shot would have to be the photo of choice.   It was warming up a bit and you can see some drips fro the icicles.  I thought I heard today that there was snow in 49 out of 50 states as of yesterday.   I assume the 50th without snow is Hawaii??  A fun winter indeed!   When will it be over??  Stay warm!
